The KTM 990 Adventure is a dual-sport motorcycle produced in Austria by KTM. The bike is powered by the LC8 liquid cooled, four-stroke, DOHC 999 cc 75° V-twin engine,[1] producing around 78 kW (105 hp). It is capable of a top speed of around 123 mph (198 km/h).[2] The engine was evolved from the 950 Adventure.
